We saw lots of neat insects, but it was too noisy with the trains nearby.

Great trail! Took the family on this easy hike through the woods and had a great time. Not for strollers, but perfect for young kids. Lots of nature to enjoy.

This is actually a very small trail (0.2mi) in Ernie Miller Nature Park, and one of the super easy trails (my husband walked it while pushing the stroller, though it is unpaved). There are easy-to-moderate trails throughout the center. There are a few hills and stream crossings. I hiked almost the entire park and it was a total of 3 miles. This is a good trail system for beginning hikers, those who want to get out in nature for an hour or so, or those wishing to introduce children to hiking.

Not a bad trail for beginners or someone just looking to get out for an hour or two and enjoy nature. A couple of creek crossings and about 5 nature trails along with some walking and biking trails.
